2009 Preseason All-Big Ten Offense

Preseason Offensive Player of the Year
QB Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State

While Penn State QB Daryll Clark, Illinois WR Arrelious Benn, and Minnesota WR Eric Decker will all be strong enough to be in the hunt for Offensive Player of the Year honors, and there's always the out-of-left-field potential for someone to step up like Shonn Greene did last year for Iowa and Rashard Mendenhall did two years ago for Illinois, it's Pryor who has the talent and the superstar potential to be a transcendent player for a program with a long history of transcendent players. There was never a question about his running ability, and now he can pass, too.

2009 Preseason All-Big Ten Defense

Preseason Defensive Player of the Year

LB Navorro Bowman, Penn State


All Bowman did, after being suspended from spring ball last year was step into the starting lineup in game three and finish with a team-leading 106 tackles with four sacks, five broken up passes, and 16.5 tackles for loss. The fastest of the linebacker options, the 6-1, 230-pounder was a Maryland Defensive Player of the Year in high school, and he has lived up to his potential and then some. He'll be used in a variety of ways working both as a pass rusher and a run stopper as he'll once again get to use his unlimited range to make things happen all over the field.
